First photos of the all-new Kia Sorento confirm that the third generation of the popular SUV will feature a new look, with bold, swept-back styling and sophisticated surface detailing.

Kia_Sorento_1Soon-Nam Lee, Vice President of Overseas Marketing, Kia Motors, said, “While we have retained the name based on the tremendous success of the outgoing model, the all-new Sorento has been completely redesigned and re-engineered, and promises to surprise customers with its thoroughly updated styling, a host of new convenience and safety technologies, as well as enhanced space, driving comfort and handling response.”

The exterior styling of the new Sorento was led by Kia’s Namyang design studio in Korea, with significant levels of input from the brand’s Frankfurt, Germany and Irvine, California design studios.

The lower roofline, higher beltline and more muscular, rounded shoulders at the rear give the car a dramatic appearance. The sleeker look is enhanced by an increase in length (+95 mm to 4,780 mm) and a 15 mm reduction in height (down to 1,685 mm), while the 80 mm longer wheelbase (now 2,780 mm) ensures more passenger space in all three seat rows.
